§ 34. Mr. Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he intends to take within the educational system to extend and improve knowledge of the Commonwealth.
§ Mr. N. Macpherson
My right hon. Friend will continue to assist the Scottish Committee of the Commonwealth Institute in the services it provides for schools to increase knowledge of the Commonwealth. He hopes also to issue a circular shortly about Commonwealth studies in the schools.
§ Mr. Hamilton
Will the hon. Gentleman enlarge on the statement in the recent White Paper on the Overseas Information Services that steps to encourage interest in Commonwealth affairs will be announced shortly? Will the hon. Gentleman indicate when he will be in a position to make such a statement?
